Isn't she cute? I gave the entire piece a light sanding, gave her another good cleaning and started painting. I didn't intend to leave the top unpainted but my mom stopped by as I was working and she mentioned how cute she thought it would be with the top stained a dark color. I decided she was right. Sometimes Mom really does know best!
The color is Woodsy Scent from Clark + Kensington (anyone else snag the free samples Ace Hardware was giving away?). The paint says it has a primer in it so I didn't prime but I still ended up having to put on two coats. Luckily this piece is small so it didn't take too long to recoat! The top I stained Kona from Minwax. Then I took some of the Martha Stewart Black Coffee glaze and glazed her legs. I replaced her old knob with a new one from Hobby Lobby.
I'm really glad I stained the top instead of painting it. I think it looks wonderful!
